Periodic Audio EIMs Mg, Ti, Be

Hi all,

I have searched about Periodic Audio eims in Head-fi and couldn't find any dedicated thread for this new born company.

Also, I am interested to hear your impressions about their EIMs, if you own any of them.

Actually, I liked their approach in developing their products and I have decided blindly to buy their flagship Be. Because I wanted lately some single dynamic flagship eim in "affordable price range", since I had some complaints for multi BA driver eims, which dominate the market at the moment. 

Currently, looking forward to the delivery...

Of course, the thread is open to everyone who wants to discuss about the Periodic Audio and their products.

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with the company. I have just bought one of their eims as a regular customer.

Thanks

You're in for a treat.The Be was one of my favorite IEMs at Canjam.

I bought the Be version and it should be arriving this week. Can't wait to try it out! I'll post my initial thoughts here.

thank you. I have read some positive feedback in web regarding their demo eims, especially very positively about Be.Therefor went straight to Be.  When it arrives I will definitely post my impressions.  Can't wait...

So YOU'RE the guy in the Uzbekistan area.  I was wondering about that...  Tashkent isn't typically considered a hot-bed of audio!  And they were shipped via USPS Priority Express so you should have them in 7-10 days!

Need a pair 😉

Indeed it is me :).  Yeah you are right! There are few enthusiastic guys like me around here in Tashkent. But unfortunately, the audio market is pretty non existent. Hopefully it will change in near future. People should know that there are many worthy brands other than Beats.   Btw, thank you for the shipping details! I have checked tracking and it works so far. Really looking forward to get mine.

Dan, I received my BEs yesterday in Austin. Very quick shipping, fast email responses from you and your team, and friendly service! I am very impressed all around.

I am even MORE impressed with the sound. You have a killer IEM with the BE version! It sounds excellent and full and dynamic, even straight out of the iPhone.

I expected it to have good punch and low end, and it certainly does. What really surprised me was the width of the soundstage and the balance all the way though the mids and treble. So much fun to listen to, and very comfortable.

I used them last night through my Grace m9xx playing a Masters album (Alt-J) via Tidal, and the BEs scaled up very well. I'm just very pleased all around with these, as you can tell. I will be selling a couple of my $500+ IEMs after getting these. Thanks for a great product!
A few pictures, just for grins.

 Thanks for the first unboxing pictures.  Now I know how they look like. Simple yet functional. Actually I like that Dan not added iphone/android remote on the cable. I think  remote would spoil aesthetics.

We had a few people ask about the "basic" packaging (the actual word wasn't quite so nice...;).  My partner Zeke had the perfect answer: "you don't listen to the box".

Mics can be good and bad.  Good when you need one to have a call (however, I know you can always use the mic on the phone, and still use your earbuds), but they do introduce measurable and often audible audio artifacts.  A couple of quick measurements on an AP are all that you need to show the effect of the mic circuit, especially on cell phones with high output impedances.  And based upon our questioning at RMAF and NYC CanJam, I'd say about 75% of headfi folks really don't care about the mic.  So - no mic!

Exactly! This is what I have been thinking about mics. I rarely have long calls therefore it doesn't bother me to take a phone out of my pocket. It is good that I am within  75% too :)

We're part of the 75%, always makes me think of this clip:

Terrific sonics (Be model) and great customer service!

@DanWiggins Thanks for participating with us here on HeadFi! I have an engineering question for you --  Why attached cables? 

Although I loved the Be, I was a little surprised to see a $300 IEM without detachable cables. I'm sure there are advantages, and I'm curious as to how that decision went down. Reviewing the website, it looks like you have a pretty great warranty to help ease any concern of a break, so I ask this plainly to gain some general knowledge. 

Why not?

:)

Seriously, there are really only two viable alternatives for detachable cables at this point:

The 2-pin PlasticsOne type connector, which is really big and bulky for IEMs (we made the cable attachment as small as possible for a reason - comfort)

An MMCX variant, but those are (IMHO) completely inappropriate because they are rated for a low number of insertions, are not intended for rotation once mated (typically RF cables are routed once and secured, as changing routing of the cable will affect RF system performance), and are not all compatible.  Witness the countless threads complaining about noisy and poor-performing MMCX-based connectors!

So at this point, we're going wired.  Reinforced cables, properly designed cable locks, and slick-enough jackets.  We are investigating a potential connector for some time in the future, but for now - it's hard to beat attached cables.  And if one should break because of materials or labor defects, well there is a 5 year warranty!  We can also repair the cables fairly affordably as well...
